    If you want to travel a few miles northwest, the Naperville Costco had plenty of Kirkland toilet paper yesterday. Also, it looks like beef prices are coming back down. They had the prime full packer briskets for $3.49/lb.

    Can someone who has visited the Chicagoland Costcos tell me more about how the Metawa location differs, if at all?

    TIA

    Have not been since corona came to town, so things may have changed but compared to Lincoln Park, the Mettawa store is way less crowded, even though it seems physically smaller. The Mettawa parking lot is more conventionally shaped and much easier to deal with. We are not huge Costco devotees so this may not be true for others but the items we typically buy (mostly non-food supplies and non-perishable food) seem similarly stocked at both stores. But again, our last visit to either of these stores was in early March, so it could be quite different right now.

    Received a letter from Costco advising their Business Center in Bedford Park, IL will re-open on August 31, 2020. This is located south of Midway Airport just off Cicero Avenue. They had closed May 4th to divert this location and employees into a fulfillment center for food and essentials intended for home delivery.

    This Business Center Costco is like a Restaurant Depot with a lot of food and supplies aimed at restaurants. It also has had unusual hours like closed Sundays, closed early on Saturdays, no tires or photo center or pharmacy. It does have a food court and sells gasoline.

    On the day Illinois sheltered at home on a Saturday at 5:00 pm, this Costco was one of the last places I visited. I bought three pounds of garlic, which is down now to less three bulbs, and a seven-pound can of artichoke quarters.

    Another oddity, if an item is on sale at the regular Costco, the sale price is not offered there.

    Costco Niles well stocked this morning. TP, water, paper towels etc. Picked up a beautiful pair of TriTip, package reads choice could easily be prime. Prime packer cut brisket, average 16/lbs, in stock for $3.49 pound.

    I can't remember the last time I saw tri-tip at the Mettawa Costco. I'm surprised to see the Niles Costco has it. Can anyone tell me if they've seen it recently at Mettawa?

    Costco really does vary by geography. Never see brisket at the Burlington VT store. But, OTOH, there's always flap at $8.99/lb, which is almost worth the trip!

    Plus, they have large sizes of some of the fine Vermont cheeses and beers, which is a great deal. Dunno whether or not youse guys in the Midwest have heard about them or not, but Vermont is making some world-class cheeses and beers these days.

    Just sayin'!!

    Today's Costco email highlighted some online only special sales. A Staub 11-inch baking dish for $39.99 including shipping and handling. That seems to be a decent price. Throwing out there in case anyone is interested.
